some special, some not
« on: October 18, 2004, 09:47:30 AM »
I was just wondering about this.  I am using LSDAS for every school except Stanford.  Do I need to do something special to tell LSAC not to send the letters to Stanford?

If you dont have an option on line to withhold your apps from specific institutions then you should simply call them(LSAC).

Well, I called and I just have to target my letters to every school EXCEPT the one for which I used school-specific letters.

The person on the phone was really really nice.  I always love helpful phone people.

Kind of what I thought.  It is good to know for sure though.

what if we used the old forms and can't target our letters?

i thought they would just be included with the report, and the school would just ignore them if they got specific letters.  i did school-specific for harvard, stanford, and columbia.  i told my recommenders to use the same letter if they want, but just complete the extra form too.

You can actually change it online.  I used the generic LSAC form, but you can change the designation in your account.  Let me know if you need pointers on how to do that.
